ok, so i'm not keen on wrecking the new paint job on my proflex 856.
i need some chainstay protection but, they have the same cross section as a house brick on the 856.
probably need some tape or something.
any ideas guys?

not retro, but I have seen some HUGE chainstay protectors for things like a sub5/patriot stylee.

Or use an old tube zip tied in a works-but-looks-shite stylee :?

Like Mike says, "Helicopter tape" works a treat and means you still get to see the paint finish rather than some black rubbery thing, really good to avaoid cable rub too.

Not the cheapest of vinyl's, mainly because its a 3M product, it's the same stuff they use for stone chip guards of Porsches, can do you an A4 sheet for £5.00 inc uk delivery ~ PM me if you want some
